There are two walls wall1 and wall2.

wall1 z-axis direction, wall2 x-axis direction.

I use {monitor-force}. After the calculations and I found that only get wall2 lift and drag coefficients. That means when I set, the wall2 settings cover the previous settings

so I want to know can fluent get the lift and drag coefficients of the two walls , thank you.

I use the Fluent 6.3.26. And in the GUI, I cannot find the {Define monitor number}. Where is it, and thanks for replying.

Monitoring Forces and Moments on Individual Walls

By default, FLUENT will compute and monitor the total force or moment for all of the selected walls combined together. If you have selected multiple walls and you want to monitor the force or moment on each wall separately, you can turn on the Per Zone option in the Force Monitors panel. The specified force vector or moment axis will apply to all selected walls. If the monitor results are printed to the console (using the Print option), the force or moment on each wall will be printed in a separate column. If the results are plotted (using the Plot option), a separate curve for each wall will be drawn in the specified plot window. If the results are written to a file (using the Write option), the file will be in a tab-separated column format based on the XY plot file format described in Section 28.8.5.

I see the links, but there is a problem that:

The lift direction of wall1 is z-axis .

while the lift direction of wall2 is x-axis .

So if I choose two walls, it shares the same force direction,right? Then if I put (0,0,1) in {Force vector} . Does it change the force direction of wall2 into z-axis?

ok I understand
Then you can try to define 2 monitors by clicking "Apply" once one monitor is well set


Remember to click Apply after making the desired modifications to the setup for each coefficient report.

I try but it still only get the wall2 data.
